Red Sox's Chris Sale: Breezes through eight innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale allowed four hits and a walk while striking out 13 over eight innings in Thursday's 4-1 extra-inning win over Toronto.

A potential win was negated when closer Craig Kimbrel allowed a game-tying run in the ninth. What Sale has done through four starts with his new team is remarkable. The Red Sox have supported him with a mere four runs over the 29.2 innings he's pitched; Sale has yet to pitch with a two-run cushion; and he took the mound with a lead in just six of the 30 innings he's started. The left-hander has handled the pressure of a tight game flawlessly, putting the Red Sox in position to win three of his four starts.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Picks up first win with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (1-1) allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out 12 across seven innings to earn the win Saturday against the Rays.

Sale has pitched well in each of his three games with the Red Sox, and the offense was finally able to scratch out enough run support to get him his first victory with his new team. Although it's based on a small sample size, his 1.25 ERA to go along with a 0.74 WHIP is making his slightly discounted draft value look like a fantastic bargain. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Suffers tough-luck loss to Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (0-1) threw 7.2 innings of two-run ball in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Tigers, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk with 10 strikeouts.

Sale was done in by a solo home run by Ian Kinsler in the sixth and a Nick Castellanos single in the eighth, while Justin Verlander was equally dominant on the other end. The Red Sox gave up a king's ransom for the lefty in the offseason, but he's looked terrific in his first two starts, carrying a 1.23 ERA and a 17:2 K:BB through 14.2 innings. He's received just one run of support thus far, but it's only a matter of time before the talented Boston offense begins to pick Sale up with regularity. He'll make his next start in a home tilt against the Rays on Saturday.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Hard to handle in no-decision Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale struck out seven while giving up just three hits and a walk over seven shutout frames in a no-decision against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Budding Pittsburgh ace Jameson Taillon engaged in a brilliant pitchers' duel with Sale, as the two matched zeroes through seven frames. The lack of a win -- although the Red Sox ultimately came away victorious in extra innings -- takes nothing away from how dominant Sale was in this one. Boston's offense will typically be more supportive, meaning Sale should have a chance to make a run at his first 20-win season.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Declares readiness after 91-pitch spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale allowed six hits and a walk while striking out six over five innings in Sunday's game against the Twins, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Sale declared himself ready to go following his 91-pitch outing. He allowed baserunners in four of his five innings but avoided damage with the help of his defense -- a runner cut down at home, a runner picked off and a runner caught stealing. He'll have a shorter outing Friday, weather permitting, when the Red Sox face the Nationals in an exhibition game in Washington, D.C., before taking the ball in the second game of the regular season next week. Over 21 spring innings, Sale has struck out 26 and walked just two. He's ready.
